Last time I checked we were happily going our merry way in April and all of a sudden…it’s May! That means 1/3 of 2017 is gone! While I love Spring and the warmer weather it brings, we tend to get weeks of rain, which means we spend many hours in doors. However, that also means we must plan our meals a little more carefully, because we don’t want to be standing out in the rain or making unnecessary trips to the store.
May is a busy month for most families. You have graduations, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and a host of other activities all squeezed in to one single month. That’s why I love making these meal plans. I have kept slow cooker meals on Sundays and Wednesdays and now have grilled recipes on Friday nights, as that is when we typically have friends over and choose to grill out, while watching the kids play.
Feel free to move any of the recipes around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef, pork) as well as soups and salads to hopefully keep everyone happy. My hope each month is that you will find some new favorites to add to your own must have rotation. Once again I have included some quick and easy Breakfast, Lunch, Snack and Dessert ideas to help you throughout the month.
